Boutip (5898) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 15, 2016
Bottle: Poured a deep reddish/copper hue color ale with a nice off-white foamy head. Aroma of berry and oak with some tart and vinous notes is pretty wonderful. Taste is also a mix of tart and vinous notes with some berry and oak notes and very faint residuals sugar notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Wonderful and I would love to compare this to Rodenbach.

Bottle. Deep copper hue with good clarity and a fluffy cream-colored head. Aroma: cola, vanilla, brown sugar, a little toffee, a splash of cherry and balsamic. Flavor flashes with green oak fading to tannic acidity and a subtle toastiness. Really well-balanced, with tartness that never gets out of control.

TheAlum (6942) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2016
750ml bottle acquired via trade on BA. Thanks, bro. Excited for this one. Pours a nice deeper ruby brown hue. Darker middle, well hazed with cocoa toasty colors, the edges show a more burnt reddish tinge, nice glow with frothy tannish head atop. A decent layer, loose creamy film sticks around ok and laces sufficiently. Aromas are tart and funky, fleeting seeedy raspberry meets oak and funky brett. Earth, touches of tart fruit, dark fruit and subtle raisin. A bit of toasty malts, faint roast and biscuits beneath. More raspberry as it settles, more oak and funk, touches of darkness, depth of aromas. Initial is lighter bodied overall, some sharpeness and funk is a bit metallic, twangy with dust and cobwebs, wet basement and tart fruit appeal. Raspberries come in a bit, tannic skin and subtle earth. Mellow toasty malt, a bit carmelized with subtle cocoa. Tart, a bit more raspberry and sour jabs hit into the middle. Backend is dry, funky and oaky. Some vanilla, earth, balsamic and cherry appeal strikes nicely, tannic wine barrel, raspberry and red grapes, a bit bitter and growing tannic appeal as we finish up. Tart, dry and funky. This ends up really nice. I was a bit apprehensive at first but ovverall this one works pretty well. A bit toasty, biscuit, subtle cocoa malt bill adds some complexity. This worked pretty well. Solid nose, pretty pour, and a beer that has some real complexity.

deyholla (9997) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 18, 2015
Bottle shared by Adam, thanks! Pours a clear amber red with a near white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has dark red tart fruits with a bit of oak, funk and grain supporting. Flavor is nutty and oaky with a decent amount of tart fruits underlying.

Bottle, thanks to bytemesis. Yet again you send me something delicious. Clear dark red/brown pour with white head. Minimal lacing. Lots of chocolate, leather, cherry tart on nose. Well-balanced between sweet and tart. Medium body, average carbonation. Lovely.
